Thanks a million to phaleslu! If you look up Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout in the dictionary, you’ll notice two things. 1.) You bought a weirdly specific dictionary. (Seriously, where’d you get that?) 2.) Listermann’s Cincinnatus is pictured next to the definition. It pours black, it smells like roasted malts and booze, it’s viscous and warm, and it tastes rich, robust, and bittersweet. Yes indeed, Cincinnatus is a no-bullshit Imperial Stout. While I admire its purity, I’d like something more unique. Still, hard to fault a beer that’s true to the style.

12 ounce bottle
This 2011 vintage shined even though it has been several years since I picked it up in the Cincinnati area. A top notch imperial stout balances barrel aging with a rich experience. Grab a bottle when you can and try a solid release that holds up with anything else in the area.

Aroma / Appearance - A fluid black base stirs with only trace amounts of carbonation. A beige thin head bubbles to the surface. Licorice, black coffee, and vanilla sweeten the area around the glass. A creamy vanilla highlights a well done balance of base beer with additional aging.

Flavor / Palate - Chocolate, anise, and smoke stick to the tongue. A malty transition sweeps to a vanilla finish.A full bodied release shines from start to finish. If you can get your hands on a bottle get one while passing through Ohio.

Bottle. A- Bourbon, cocoa, malty. A- Black color, dark liquid, light brown head. T- Bourbon, chocolate, malty, molasses. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, strong finish. O- I’m honestly struggling to recall all the things I got from this. It was definitely boozy and had a lot of flavors going on in it. This one was definitely a sipper.

Bottle shared late night during RBWG 2015. Pours rich black-brown with a creamy beige head. Pretty sweet, lots of sugary dark malts, rich chocolate, mild alcohol, burnt pine, earthy bitterness. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish with some sticky and gooey chocolate, strong roast, darkr hits, raisins, scorched earth. Good stuff.
